Famous Photographers – Ansel Adams


Every time the words photography, landscape photography and black-and-white photography are mentioned, the first name that comes to mind is Ansel Adams. But, what exactly is so special about Ansel Adam’s body of work?

Ansel Adams the Icon

Ansel Adams is considered an iconic figure and the most famous photographer in history because his landscape black-and-white photographs were paramount in establishing photography among the more traditional fine arts, such as paintings and sculptures.

His amazing images of Yosemite National Park have been widely reproduced in books, calendars and posters, and are among some of the most recognizable images in the world. However, I believe his talent was best showcased through his images of the state of New Mexico. My favorite Ansel Adams photograph is, by far, Moonrise over Hernandez, NM. We will talk in greater detail about this specific photograph (and, trust me, I can go on and on about it) in later posts.

His Influence 

My work has been greatly influenced by Ansel, not only on technique, but also because he had a vision to create something bigger than himself. Ansel often used his images to promote environmental activism and conservation of wilderness areas.

Every great artist must have a vision and a powerful purpose linked to his or her creative process; that’s what makes art relevant. That indefinable feeling behind a photograph or a fine art print is what truly inspires, and makes an artist’s body of work timeless.

I’ve chosen some of my favorite Ansel Adam’s photographs to share with you. I hope you enjoy them, and please don’t forget to let me know what you think.
